Fayose’s Commissioner Arrested with Guns in Ekiti


Ekiti State Commissioner for Works Kayode Oso, Special Adviser to the Governor on Political Matters, Ademola Bello and four others were arrested by police at the vicinity of the House of Assembly.

They were among loyalists of Governor Ayo Fayose who laid siege to the precincts of the Assembly complex, waiting for the 19 All Progressives Congress (APC) lawmakers.

Police sources said they were arrested with one black colour Ford pick-up van with registration number EK 05-B27 and one blue Toyota Hilux van with registration number AA 363 YEK.

The two vehicles, believed to belong to the state government, were carrying weapons, including nine live cartridges, 10 cutlasses, charms, fake US dollars, a carton of Regal dry gin, a parcel of Indian hemp and six small kegs of kerosene.
Also arrested are Adeyanju Oluwole, Raphael Adebayo, Babajide Adebayo and Wasiu Ogunsakin.

Some of the thugs in the entourage reportedly escaped during their encounter with the policemen.

Police Commissioner Taiwo Lakanu could not be reached for comments on phone proved abortive as he did not pick his calls. Neither did he reply text messages sent to his cell phone.

The police in Ekiti State have been on red alert since the APC lawmakers commenced impeachment moves against Governor Fayose and his deputy.
Police spokesman Alberto Adeyemi, in a text message, said he was not aware of the arrest.
